Autumn 1856 and young and feisty Isabelle Sedgeford runs terrified from Blakefields Mansion, leaving behind her friend Abigail who has fallen in love with a schemer and is being held prisoner for her own protection.
The two girls had expected an introduction to society, and possibly romance, but instead they walked into a hotbed of intrigue which extends far beyond the walls of the grandiose Mansion in the West Riding of Yorkshire.
Izzy urgently needs to find someone she can trust. Of the gentlemen, none has yet proved his worth and integrity beyond doubt. Robert appears to be honest, but is undoubtedly devious. The Lord of the Manor and his friend are clearly hiding a secret. The owner of Stonecrest, the adjacent estate, has a blunt character and a dark stain in his past.
Blakefields Mansion and its sequel, Stonecrest, are realistic historical romances that will draw you into their exciting pages and have you rooting for the Good and True among the many satisfying plot twists.
Do you love the works of Jane Austen and Charles Dickens? If so, Blakefields Mansion is a fresh story with a familiar feel.
